In other news, I'm eagerly anticipating Cynthia Huntington's forthcoming collection "Heavenly Bodies," which is the 2010 Editor's Selection Crab Orchard Poetry Series. (!)
I am also very pleased to have been invited to William Paterson University as a Guest Speaker -- I'll be reading from my manuscript-in-progress, answering questions, and leading a mini-workshop.
I don't know if I mentioned this on the blog, but I was recently appointed to my city's Cultural Commission. I was sworn in last night and attended my first meeting. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I came away motivated and excited about our next event, as well as with a long list of things to get accomplished before the next meeting.
But truly, the most important news I have to share with you is that my daughter starts Daisies next week. Girl Scouts Rule!
